Seven titles bound for Wii; Carnival Games bound for DS after shipping 500,000; no GTA for Nintendo.
Take-Two recently reported sales and financial results for their fourth quarter, ending October 31, and included in the wealth of information that included nuggets of interest for gamers on Nintendo platforms.
Take-Two reported that their Wii surprise hit, Carnival Games, has shipped more than 500,000 units. Carnival Games released for the Wii in August and has since enjoyed a steady stream of sales. Take-Two also announced that they intended to bring the title to the DS sometime next year.
Take-Two also revealed that they had seven titles headed for the Wii, including Bully and Don King Presents Prizefighter. But although they admitted that they had changed from a "non-Nintendo shop into one as focused on Nintendo as any other platform." Chairman Strauss Zelnick concluded that, at least in the case of Take-Two's flagship series Grand Theft Auto, "there are other titles better suited to the Wii."
